GoldLink Runs Through The Archives In Soulful NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

GoldLink is one of the main frontmen of the current wave of hip-hop. Hailing from the DMV, GoldLink got his first break from his 2014 project titled The God Complex, a trip into overdrive. The powerful artist eventually connected with Rick Rubin, who would executive produce the Soulection-released follow-up And After That, We Didn’t Talk, covering the perils of a young heartbreak.

Flash forward to 2017, GoldLink inked a deal with RCA Records. “Fall In Love” and Grammy-nominated “Crew” would serve as the two main singles from his At What Cost debut album.

This past week, GoldLink led a trip down memory lane for NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series, performing cuts from each of the three projects. With a full band behind him, including close collaborator Louie Lastic on bass, GoldLink throws an even more soulful spin on many fan favorites.

Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals Stop By NPR Tiny Desk

Anderson .Paak and his band The Free Nationals have continued to impress music fans around the world with their unique sound, weaving between the spectrum of tunes we heard on Venice to the soulful cuts of Malibu. The stacked group of talent recently stopped by NPR for their Tiny Desk Series, which has been blessed from the likes of The Internet and Leon Bridges in the past.

.Paak begins his set with a couple cuts from Malibu before finishing off with crowd favorite, “Suede.” The bare-bones rendition of each track maintains the sultriness and synergy we love from the group, while also serving as the perfect introduction for new fans.
